Samhain Abhainn Festival in Ballina

Festivals in County Mayo in the West of Ireland


October-November 2016

Samhain Abhainn Festival will take place from Friday 28th October to Thursday 3rd November in Ballina. This event is becoming one of the best and scariest family festivals in the West of Ireland. It will celebrate all things spooky and scary and the programme is fully packed with a cauldron of unique and hair-raising events for children of all ages and adults alike.

The town will be turned into a land of magic, mystery and myth where visitors will have a big night out in their finest costumes joining in a creepy murder mystery trail or in a scary walk in the woods.

The Scary Woods Walk is the biggest event of the festival and this year will be the scariest than ever. The group Huxley Horror will assure their presence in the eerie surroundings of Belleek Woods and the walk will be terrifying!

The Scary Woods Walk will take place on Friday 28th, Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th October.
